In 1918, most folks were away from the nearest hospital...and the nearest hospital could be barely even be called that.
Wasn't like they had Tamiflu, or over the counter remedies for symptoms, or the knowledge of treatment options beyond midwife folklore.
It's still the flu, and just like any other flu, the young, old, and/or weak are most at risk and should pay close attention during this, but the
vast majority of us likely wouldn't know this flu from any other if we had it, and we'd take care of it in just the same way.
I realize it's at 6 (Pandemic) right now, but I still feel this is getting an awful lot of hype (and no doubt, a lot of folks are getting some
funding out of the scare tactics).....
